Item #2015

Hollywood, Florida: (1950s). 31 drawings on paper, most are by colored felt marker. Most measure around 14” x 19”. Very good: leaves lightly toned, most with several pinholes not affecting images and evidence of scrapbook removal on versos. A group of original cartoon art created by Dick Briefer. Briefer was best known as a comic book artist, with his Frankenstein humor comics being the most popular of his work. These cartoons mostly feature either fantasy-proportioned bombshells or tired, nagging housewives, along with several different cheating spouses. One shows a scantily clad woman sitting on the lap of a bank manager; her husband, with hat in hand says, “I've made my last loan payment, can I have my wife back now? ” Another shows a man in his easy chair, watching buxom women on television while reading a magazine called “Looka”. His angry wife holds a travel brochure in front of his face and the caption reads, “Second honeymoon? What was the matter with the first one? ” In another, Briefer objectified a young man on all fours inside of a pet store display window next to a sign that reads “take home a pet. ” The manager is speaking to a woman with her purse opened, and says, “No ma'm, he's just dressing the window. ” While we cannot determine if they were published, they certainly capture the adult male zeitgeist of the era.
